Artist: MARTIAL CANTEREL
"Brooklyn based Martial Canterel (aka Moravagine)
second LP release "Austerton", recorded in 2003, is a
continuation of the spirit of "Confusing Outsides"
however, he pairs down the processes even further. One
of the foundational principles he abides by is for all
of the music either live or in the home studio to be
accomplished - performed - live in one push. The
reconstructed ruins of Xanten inform the
claustrophilic narratives of loss, indecipherability,
and betrayal. The analog synthesizer is now truly a
folk instrument...no longer necessarily an attempt at
some conception of the future, but, rather, its
impossibility, a lament for its ultimate undoing." - Xanten.
